Address: Farmingdale Water District
72 Gazza Blvd.
Babylon, NY 11735

AQS Number: 36-103-0002
DEC Number: 5150-02
New York State County: Suffolk
Statistical Area: New York City Metropolitan Area
Coordinates: 40.74529 N -73.41919 W

The Babylon air monitoring station was originally established in the 1970's as a continuous sulfur dioxide and ozone site. Located on Long Island, downwind from New York City, the site continues to measures urban ozone levels in the New York City metropolitan area.

In 1999 a Federal Reference Method fine particulate (PM2.5) sampler was added to the site. This PM2.5 monitor is part of the overall PM2.5 monitoring network used for comparison to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards.

The ozone data are reported to the AIRNow system.

The parameters monitored are indicated in the following table:

Coordinates: 40.81976 N -73.94825 W

The City College of New York - CCNY air monitoring site was established during the summer of 2007. This site includes an ozone analyzer and a continuous fine particulate (PM2.5) sampler. Fine particulate monitoring utilizes a PM2.5 R&P Tapered Element Oscillating Microbalance (TEOM).

In addition to Department monitoring equipment the CCNY School of Engineering operate ambient air monitoring equipment in the same location. Data from this equipment are not reported or certified by the Department.

Data from this site is reported to the AIRNow system.

This site was established in September 2006. Initially the site contained a continuous fine particulate (PM2.5) Tapered Element Oscillating Microbalance (TEOM). In March 2007, the FRM PM2.5, PM10 and MetOne Speciation samplers were added following the emergency shut- down of the Canal Street Post Office (36-061-0062). Reference EPA letter: Ruvo to Lavin dated: March 14, 2007. The URG 3000 Carbon sampler was added in May 2007.

DEC Number: 2950-10
New York State County: Nassau
Statistical Area: New York City Metropolitan Area
Coordinates: 40.74316 N -73.58549 W

The Eisenhower Park air monitoring station was originally established as a Nassau County Health Department air monitoring site. It was operated with support from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation until 2000 when the Department took over complete control of the site. The continuous fine particulate (PM2.5) monitoring data from this site are reported to AirNow.

NO2 monitoring was terminated at this site on March 31, 2011. Ultrafine Particle monitoring was discontinued in June 2010.
